Ford has announced the launch of its latest electric vehicle, the Ford E-Tourneo Courier, a compact and practical van that offers plenty of space and style for urban drivers. The all-electric E-Tourneo Courier will be available to order in late 2024 and will join Ford's growing range of electrified vehicles, including the Mustang Mach-E, the F-150 Lightning, and the Ford E-Transit Courier.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier is designed to meet the needs of customers who want a versatile and efficient vehicle that can handle both personal and professional use. The vehicle has a spacious cabin that can accommodate up to five passengers or up to 1,656 liters (58.5 cubic feet) of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. The vehicle also features a sliding side door and a wide-opening rear door for easy access and loading.
The electric van is powered by a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery that provides a range of up to 300 kilometers (186 miles) on a single charge, according to the WLTP standard. The battery can be recharged from 10% to 80% in about 40 minutes using a 150 kW DC fast charger or in about six hours using a 7.4 kW AC wall box. The vehicle also supports wireless charging via an optional pad installed at home or work.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier offers a smooth and responsive driving experience thanks to its electric motor that delivers 136 horsepower and 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) of torque. The vehicle also features a regenerative braking system that recovers energy when decelerating or braking and a selectable drive mode system that allows drivers to choose between Normal, Eco, and Slippery modes depending on the road conditions and driving preferences.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier electric van is equipped with a range of advanced technologies that enhance safety, comfort, and convenience for drivers and passengers. The vehicle features a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with SYNC 4A software that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as voice control and over-the-air updates. The vehicle also features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster that displays key information such as speed, battery level, range, and navigation.
The vehicle also comes with Ford Co-Pilot360, a suite of driver assistance features that include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, post-collision braking, evasive steering assist, reverse brake assist, speed sign recognition, intelligent speed assist, driver alert system, rearview camera, active park assist 2.0, and head-up display.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier is both a practical, efficient, stylish, and attractive vehicle. The vehicle has a sleek and modern design that reflects its electric nature, with aerodynamic lines, LED headlights and taillights, a closed grille with an illuminated Ford logo, and distinctive alloy wheels. The vehicle has eight exterior colors: Frozen White, Moondust Silver, Magnetic Grey, Agate Black, Blazer Blue, Race Red, Lucid Red (exclusive), and Solar Silver (exclusive). The vehicle has various customization options, such as roof rails, body-colored bumpers and mirrors, and interior trims.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier is expected to start at around $35,000 in the US market and will compete with other electric vans such as the Nissan e-NV200, the Peugeot e-Partner, and the Volkswagen e-Caddy. The vehicle is part of Ford's commitment to invest more than $30 billion in electrification by 2025 and to offer an all-electric or plug-in hybrid option for every model in its European portfolio by mid-2026.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier is a vehicle that combines space and style in a compact and practical format and offers a zero-emission alternative for urban drivers who want to reduce their environmental impact. The vehicle is expected to appeal to both private customers who need a versatile family car and professional customers who need a reliable work vehicle.
